While we waited for our train to arrive, Lincoln started, mesmerized by the interactive train they had in the station.
Seriously, I cannot tell you how excited he was about that ticket. He didn’t let it go the entire train ride. Well, except when he was literally trying to lose his ticket, trying to push it out the window. Sort of like they do in the movie. Silly boy seemed like he was trying to reenact the movie!
When the conductor came to punch the tickets, Lincoln eagerly handed him over his ticket. I think he was a bit disappointed that his ticket wasn’t punched to say, “Believe.”
My Mom, Lincoln’s Grammy, was one of the people with us. I’m not sure who was more excited, him or her 🙂
Mrs. Claus joined us on our ride. Notice he’s still holding his ticket…
When Santa arrived, he surprisingly got a little shy! He even laid down on Santa’s lap!
And then, he placed it on my head. Lincoln thought that was pretty neat, too!
The train ride was one hour and fifteen minutes, and my sweet Lincoln enjoyed each and every second of it.
We will absolutely continue this annual tradition with him. Next year, we’ll visit a different train station. There are so many of them around! I’d like to do one where we wear our pajamas and have hot chocolate 🙂
